Yeah... justice in the Twilight Zone!

"The Obsolete Man" is judged, sentenced, and televised...

Remember that sound the ensemble cast makes when the leader walks back in to resume his post, and they go like, "ahhhhhrrrrowww..." man, that's way out!

Yes, all those are all great lessons, but how do they relate to UNITED STATES HISTORY? I love TZ, don't get me wrong....just don't see the connection to US history.

There's the TZ about the history teacher who knows so much rich detail about the Civil War, because he actually lived through it -

And there's the one about the 3 20th century soldiers who discuss the Battle of Big Horn, and end up joining Gen. Custer...

In "BACK THERE" a man tries to prevent the Lincoln assaination, and in "NO TIME LIKE THE PAST" a time traveller is unable to change various disasters and so he decides not to stop the Garfield assasination, and ends up starting the Chicago fire of 1881 instead... an episode with many events in US history!

Peripheral ones include "THE ENCOUNTER" which argues aspects of Pearl Harbor, "STATIC" about an antique radio that broadcasts past history and entertainment, and "THE CHANGING OF THE GUARD" if only because it looks at the value of a teacher's relationship with his pupils...
